Cupboards, garages and sheds were cleaned out for the town garage sale event on Saturday.November 7, 2012 4:50am
The local families who spent hours cleaning out their cupboards and sheds now have smiles on their faces after a very successful ‘Town Sale Madness’ event on Saturday.
There were 17 garage sales on Saturday, and Wood St resident Marie Smith said over 100 people had been through before 11 o’clock Saturday morning.
Her daughter, Monique, had come up specifically for the weekend and brought items to sell.
People started showing up at 7am, despite the earliest time for the garage sales being 8am.
Monique said her two year-old dog, Hugo, was the reason they had so many buyers.
‘‘We don’t usually have garage sales, but after this weekend we’re thinking about doing them more regularly,’’ Monique said.
Local businesses also took part in the bargain-filled day.
Harvey Norman franchisee Chris Heikkinen said the garage sales meant a lot of people were out and about - which meant customer numbers increased.
Before lunch time on Saturday, Mr Heikkinen said a huge amount of people had already come though his doors.
And the bargains aren’t over yet.
While Harvey Norman slashed prices specifically for Saturday, Mr Heikkinen said prices will stay down.
The store has a variety of sales on.
‘‘We’ve got the perfect presents to put under your Christmas tree,’’ Mr Heikkinen said.
